Teachers unions are infecting America’s youth with hatred of our country.
While they claim to represent hard-working teachers, they’ve become nothing more than mouthpieces for the radical fringe of the Democrat Party.
And the reason why this teachers union in one state is shutting down classes had Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez grinning from ear to ear.
School districts across North Carolina are canceling classes on May 1.
May 1 is celebrated by socialists as “May Day.”
In fact, Netflix is even releasing a documentary celebrating Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on May Day.
Now, the teachers union is rallying upwards of 19,000 people to go to the capital on a school day.
The News & Observer reports:
School districts across North Carolina are canceling classes for May 1 in advance of what could be a larger protest than the one that brought more than 19,000 people to downtown Raleigh last year.
The N.C. Association of Educators has urged school employees to request the day off, prompting districts such as Wake County on Wednesday and Charlotte-Mecklenburg on Thursday to say they won’t have enough substitute teachers to hold classes. All four of the state’s largest school districts have announced they’ll be closed May 1.
The rhetoric on both sides has ratcheted up. Supporters say bold action is needed again to pressure state lawmakers to make budget decisions on Medicaid and education funding that they think will help improve North Carolina.
According to WRAL, North Carolina ranks in the middle of the pack – 29th – in terms of teacher pay.
In a Facebook post, Republican Senate Leader Phil Berger shot back at the May Day protesters, saying “On May 1, thousands of children will be forced out of the classroom and hardworking parents will have to find childcare or miss work — all so the far-left teacher strike organizers can try to elect more Democrats.”
Democrat activists pulling the strings in teachers unions know they have to win North Carolina if they’re going to defeat President Trump in 2020.
So they are trying to rally socialists to appeal to the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wing of the Democrat Party by organizing a massive protest.
But the teachers union is putting politics above of students.
And they’re holding parents hostage to push their socialist agenda in the classroom.
Do you support the teachers union forcing North Carolina schools to shut down on a socialist holiday?
